345. Perfect quote for these times my friend
And it's about time you stopped lurking! :P LOL

I love reading about the events that led to the American Revolution. So many colonists struggling with their growing disdain for the British rule...and how fitting that it should all happen under King George III. God has a soft spot for irony it seems.

As a Texas Democrat, I'm starting to truly comprehend the sheer anger and resentment at the notion of taxation without representation. Thanks Delay! :grr: On the bright side, history tells me it would be un-American to not fight against this madness and since I love my country, I'm prepared to do whatever it takes to make Jefferson proud. It seems fair given what he and the thousands of others had to endure to secure the freedoms I take for granted today.

And as for you, I think the world of you. I suspect John's smile wouldn't be nearly as bright without you in his life. You've raised a great husband (ha ha!), a beautiful family, and my thoughts and heart are with you.

Welcome to DU.
